A writer who wrote her first book in Germany at the age of 8, graduated high school in Japan, and got a degree in Mechanical Engineering from FSU. In 2015 I realized my life was missing a creative outlet and rediscovered my love for writing.
I participated in Camp NaNoWriMo in July of that year and realized that for years I had been holding myself and my writing back. I’d had the stereotypical image of a writer in my head: a coffee-filled, sleep-deprived person at a typewriter with throw-away pages of their manuscript littering the room as they tried and failed and tried again to write just. One. Page.
That's not how writing is at all (although am I the only one that wants to buy a typewriter just because they’re awesome?!).
Since then, I’ve written two YA fantasy books: The Elysian Prophecy and The Elysian Architect and am making my way through my third.
I broke down that barrier to my creativity and realized that writing could fun--that it should be fun. Over the years, I’ve struggled in more ways than I could ever write in this short description, and I’ve made it my mission to help as many writers as I can through their own struggles.
It is a truth universally acknowledged that a writer in possession of a good story idea should find it impossible to write.
Even though writing is hard, that doesn’t mean you can’t be happy. Through all my struggles I’ve realized that as writers, writing is our creative outlet! We do it for so many reasons, but the root is that it simply moves us closer to "happy."
It’s my ultimate goal to help YOU write, publish, and market your novel in a happy and sustainable way and your support means you’ll be doing the same for me!
Patreon is a platform where creators can connect more intimately with their true fans and provide quality content that can help educate or entertain. As a YouTuber, this is a HUGE shift and an amazing opportunity to get to know you and your own writing struggles even more.
You know as well as I do that writing is a profession that doesn’t always provide steady income. Patreon is an amazing way for me to grow and expand my Happy Writing business to help YOU even further.
The rewards vary based on your tier, but include things like early access to my videos, a video suggestion box, exclusive early access to my books (when available), and monthly critiques of excerpts of your manuscript.
I'm always looking to improve the rewards for each tier so if you ever have a suggestion, don't hesitate to let me know! I'm here to help YOU and the best way to do that is through your feedback.
